AC Title Card2,567 Views6 RepliesAdd A Reply
What are your guys' expectations for the title card? Are you expecting that slow pan with the bits of the letters coming in slowly one by one to form "Alien," and then the letters of "Covenant" slowly flicker into view? Will you be disappointed if it isn't like the original? Personally, I'm expecting the prequel scene with David and Weyland ending on a zinger by one of them, then cutting to black with the title "Alien" already there, and the pieces of the letters to form "Covenant" slowly appear.
Fox logo music plays as usual and then a Dramatic piece will start to play and build up during the Scott Free logo... Then it shows the opening credits and cast and everything in black... After it says Directed by Ridley Scott... We open on Walters eye and then the prologue scene. Cut to black dramatically and then the Alien logo appears like the original and then Covenant appears in letters one by one
Cleaner than Earth Actually
I think the ALIEN part will segment in like the original, then the covenant part will fade in somehow differently. That would tie it closer to the original don't ya think?
I expect the same as all the other movies.
Woolson- I like your idea.
I dont think it will be the same way as the original from 1979. That would be to repetative and people might think this movie ties right in more closely to Alien...what it isnt supposed to be, cause an additional prequel trilogy is thought of. That trilogy will be and set timewise before the original Alien movie.
I think as it is supposed to be more likely to connect to Prometheus and be part of that prequel trilogy (Prometheus, Awakening and Covenant)
The opening credits will be kinda the same writing style and art as the Prometheus credits.
I always liked how the 20th Century Fox theme did the dramatic "hang" at the end when Alien 3 hit the big screen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vic6bO14CZg
Also, I agree with dk regarding Woolson's idea.
That would be great ;)
